Diplomat Found Dead Outside Berlin Embassy Believed To Be Russian Intelligence Agent

It’s been revealed for the first time in a bombshell Der Spiegel report on Friday that a man found dead just outside the Russian embassy in Berlin last month was a Russian intelligence agent. Though Russia has not disclosed this, the allegation as to his identity is being made by German intelligence officials after his death under mysterious circumstances.

“The 35-year-old man’s body was found early on Oct. 19, the magazine said. It said, citing security sources, that the man had fallen from an upper floor at the embassy,” Reuters summarizes of the German media report. 

He was officially considered a diplomat of the embassy, having been publicly listed in the position of second secretary. It’s common for countries, including the United States, to place covert operatives in undercover roles as diplomatic personnel at their foreign embassies and consulates.

The man, whose name has not been given, was found at approximately 7:20 am on 19 October 2021 by police that are assigned to guard the embassy compound. Emergency paramedics arrived on the scene but could not resuscitate him. 

Der Spiegel cited German intelligence sources to say that not only was the man “in fact” an undercover Federal Security Service (FSB) agent, but that he’s also believed related to a top ranking FSB general. It remains however that nothing in the way of specific evidence was offered in the publication – but that the Russian’s status appears to be the official view of German intelligence.
